Our Vision is to advance human rights through education starting with the most disadvantaged children in underdeveloped communities.

Our Approach involves working with partners in local communities who share our vision and mission and volunteers who share our passion and commitment for international human rights and education. We support our local partners and volunteers so they can help educate and inspire the next generation of leaders to make a difference in their communities.
